Wordless Wednesday: Summer Harvest

We found our home last August right before heading to the lake for a few days. As we drove around on the boat, I kept picturing the gorgeous flowers, the kids playing in that yard, me working on that deck. When we got back home, we put in an offer immediately.  We moved in in October and all winter long I waited to find out what spring flowers were hiding beneath the snow.  March arrived and our street blossomed with daffodils and crocuses, my flower beds still brown.  It turns out that the previous owners only planted a summer garden, so while I plan on fixing that this fall, I’m happy to finally be enjoying our summer harvest of daisies and phlox, hydrangeas and tall grasses.

      We could switch! You tell me what you planted for the spring, and I’ll tell you what’s in my yard for the summer!

    Oh my Amy, those are amazing shots. We have bunnies that keep attacking all of our flowers once they bloom.

      There was one really big bunny that we saw hanging out in our yard for awhile, but then we saw a fox. Now the bunny is, um, gone. Oops.

      Our property slopes from front to back with the common land/run off area back and to the side. For that reason the back half of our backyard stays perfectly wet for the flowers. We are so fortunate!
